Introducing the AW-UE80 4K Professional PTZ Camera
Optical 24x Zoom & 74.1° Horizontal Wide Angle Lens
Adding “iZoom” to the AW-UE80’s exceptional 24x optical zoom, maintains high resolution while enabling ultra-high resolution 36x zoom in HD mode. This enables distant subjects to be captured clearly. Furthermore, 74.1° horizontal wide-angle shooting allows you to capture the entire area with one camera, even when installation space is limited.
Versatile Video Outputs for a Range of Video Productions
The AW-UE80 supports three popular output interfaces, including 3G-SDI, HDMI and IP, providing you with a range of options for current camera installations, while also preparing you for future video workflows.
Multiple Control Options for Small or Large Scale Production
The AW-UE80 can be controlled via the web browser when connected to the network, allowing for quick and easy camera movement, preset access, and image adjustments. Additionally, the camera can be controlled using the AW-RM50 IR remote control and the AW-RP150 / AW-RP60 hardware-based camera controllers. These control choices make it easy to integrate the UE80 into your video production workflow.
Live AR/VR Video Production via FreeD Protocol
To be able to incorporate realistic VR (virtual reality) or AR (augmented reality) studio sets in your live productions, accurate camera positioning data is imperative. The AW-UE80 features the FreeD protocol, which provides you with the option to output Pan / Tilt / Zoom / Iris information via Serial (RS 422) and IP (UDP) directly from the camera to your AR/VR tracking system.
Flexible Installation & Mounting Options
Weighing only 4.4 lbs, the AW-UE80 is lightweight and compact enough for easy permanent or portable installs. It’s equipped with a turn lock mechanism for easy installation and comes standard with a safety cable for extra security and peace of mind.
Fresh New Web Interface
Camera IP image output, settings, and control can be performed using a web browser on a computer connected via an IP network. In addition to PCs and Macs, iPads, iPhones, Androids and other mobile devices can be used for operation, and this pursuit of easy-to-use interfaces has enabled smooth camera control from remote locations.
Supports SRT for Secure and Reliable Video Streaming
The AW-UE80 supports SRT, a next generation video transport protocol that provides robust security and works well even with an unstable network environment. This prevents trouble such as transmission interruptions during program production or event recording, thus assuring stable and reliable video streaming. This protocol can prevent risks such as information leakage, so it can be used safely for any video content.
Directly Integrates into the NDI Ecosystem
The AW-UE80 supports high bandwidth NDI® for IP transmission of high-quality videos with low latency and NDI®|HX for efficient video transmission on a network with limited bandwidth. With this flexibility, the UE80 can provide stable video streaming regardless of network bandwidth. Since the video source is accessible from any device on the same network, even unknown IP addresses are automatically recognized. This allows for a flexible video production flow at the shooting site.
Smooth Camera Movement & Quiet Operation with Direct Drive System
The operating sound is quiet so there is no need to worry about the camera sound spoiling the ambience even when producing a reality show or recording an event. The new direct-drive motor operates quietly during panning (horizontal movement) and tilting (vertical movement) so it does not disturb the recording of crucial scenes.
